This image was lost some time after publication.

The boys at World Car Fans say the photos are unretouched, so we'll go with that. According to the backstory, a man and his son came across this undisguised Porsche 997 Targa as it was being shot commercially in northern California (new brochure in the works?), and whipped out their digicams. A rear shot offers the cleanest view yet of the panoramic transparent roof, which slides back out of sight when the al fresco button is pushed. We're expecting an unveiling at the Paris show in September ahead of a springtime '07 launch.
